As part of this 4,000 sq ft apartment renovation in Tribeca, we designed an outdoor-worthy jungle gym, giving three lively boys their dream playground at home. For their parents, we designed other custom touches, such as a series of perforated metal benches that float underneath the windows along the entire length of the apartment. The benches hide existing radiators and create a new zone for seating and display.
The expertise that our partners bring to a project is crucial. In the case of this bench, close collaboration was required to find a metal gauge, perforation size and height that would allow the front edge to span 12 feet. Custom oversized perforated metal was ordered, a specialty metal breaking shop employed and the existing existing GWB in the apartment was replaced with MDF to support the unit.
